I was first introduced to motorsport at the age of twelve. It didn't take long before my interest in fast cars became a passion. My first kart race came a year later driving a rental kart. After a summer of doing yard work for neighbors, I was able to purchase my own kart.
I raced the Red Bull Formula One Driver Search in both 2004 and 2005 and made it to the regional finals which was a great learning experience. I also began racing the SCCA's Solo2 program in 2003 and continued through 2007. In 2008 I started to do more track days and eventually moved into wheel to wheel racing. In 2012 I bought my first dedicated race car which was a Mazda RX-7 to race with the Sports Car Club of America and also did a one off weekend with HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing). The RX-7 was sold in the fall of 2013 to make room for a new Mazda3. Despite a good start with the Mazda I decided to sell it early in 2014 to look towards 2015.
